TMS5700914APGEQQ1: On-board programming and debugging for Hercules TMS570

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LAUNCHXL2-RM46

Hi Team,

Could you help our customer with his concern below?

I'm Diego Acevedo and I'm developing an application to control two PMSMs for an off-road electric vehicle ( With these considerations, I decided to use the TMS5700914 as the controller for final production and purchased the LAUNCHXL2-RM46 development board for developing the application and evaluating the performance of this family of microcontrollers. To get a better approximation, the operating frequency of the development card was adjusted to the TMS5700914's maximum.

Currently, we are developing the second version of our prototype and we want to implement the TMS5700914 on our PCB. However, we are not sure about which programming and debugging interface we should implement. For this reason, I would like to answer the following questions:

1. Is it possible to implement the XDS100v2 without using the XC2C32A CPLD? (project provided by Texas Instruments)
2. On the other hand, in case of using the XDS110, which interface should be added to the PCB in order to program and debug the TMS5700914?
3. What other alternatives to program the TMS5700914 could be used?

Thank you for your attention.

Have a nice day.

Best regards,
